Washington, D.C. – ATIS today announced release of ATIS Standard: 5G Network Assured Supply Chain, a new publication presenting a standard to secure 5G infrastructure from cybersecurity threats.
“Securing the 5G information and communications technology supply chain is critical as 5G capabilities expand rapidly in North America,” said ATIS President and CEO Susan Miller. “At the request of the Department of Defense, ATIS has brought together leading industry and government partners to develop this standard. We are confident in the standard’s ability to deliver the multiple levels of assurance needed to secure the 5G supply chain.”
This document includes requirements and controls necessary to operationalize a set of well-defined levels of assurance associated with the complete lifecycle functions of 5G supply chains. The standard provides entities operating networks and their suppliers a flexible approach to assuring 5G supply chain at any level of component integration or product type.
The work that went into developing it is based on a flexible reference model and component flow through the complex 5G supply chain to identify specific controls that can mitigate the identified threats and associated attacks. By applying these requirements and controls, customers can achieve a much greater level of assurance that the 5G supply chain is secure in a constantly evolving threat environment.
